Great meal, better service!

We ate here on holiday just a few days ago. The meals that we had were exquisite. I had the Indian plate on special, and my wife had the tofu pasta. We're not vegetarian, but we do enjoy a good vegetarian meal from time to time, and Hugo's selection of vegetarian options did not disappoint... read more

5 of us with completely different ideas on what they wanted to eat for dinner went to Hugos in Los Angeles. The menu had something for everyone including lots of vegetarian and vegan entrees. We all enjoyed our meal and the service.

Hugo's has locations both in the heart of West Hollywood and Studio City (Valley Village). I feel that the food quality and level of attentive service is consistent between both locations. The food is very tasty and can conform to ANY preference of the guest (vegan, gluten free, etc). Brunch and lunch are very popular at both of their locations.... More

There was a big variety of healthy dishes. The "green casserole" was delicious. It was fun to overhear all the "Hollywood" talk. I saw Sly Stone and James Cromwell eating there.

Don't get me wrong, Hugo's lunch and dinner cuisine is wonderful as well, but I find that most of the time I go for breakfast food, even if it's at night! (They serve part of their breakfast menu all day/night.) Unlike most run-of-the-mill places, they have all sorts of yummy GREEN ingredients to put in an omelette or scramble (avocado,... More

We had dinner here tonight and the floors are dirty and cracked, the washroom was awful, the table was sticky and even the menu was sticky and dirty. My friend ordered the turkey burger with fries and it was terrible, pink and fell apart into a mess on the plate. The waitress was no where to be found and never... More

Recently visited Hugo's for dinner, enjoying the variety of vegetarian options. Many gluten free options to choose from, which was much appreciated. We began by sharing the Artichoke Dip, which in my estimation lacked flavour, but was enjoyed by others at the table. I had the Kale Taco casserole, which had a nice assortment of veggies and was quite generous... More

Went to Hugo's on West Hollywood, the food was delicious variety of plates was huge. I specially remember the side of sautéed mushrooms as one of the best I ever had. They also offer non vegetarian choices. Services very friendly . Definitively I will return .

Went to Hugo's in Studio City on the recommendation of our son and his wife. Our whole family eats as natural as possible - organic, pastured meats etc. Usually, restaurants that advertise this type of food are a little to crunchy for me and the food is tasteless or all tastes like Indian food. Hugo's surprised me! I had chicken... More

Hugo's in Los Angeles has the most extensive menu I've ever seen . . . and many of the dishes offered you won't see in many other restaurants. Great service and superb food in a pleasant atmosphere. I had the turkey meatloaf with Hugo's special mashed potatoes and gravy. It was difficult to choose, however, because the menu is filled... More
